A Tour of This Haunted Wyoming Prison Is Not For the Faint Of Heart

If you’re looking for a hair-raising adventure, you’ll find it in Rawlins, Wyoming. That’s the home of the Wyoming Frontier Prison, the state’s first penitentiary. During its years of use, the facility housed some of the most violent criminals in Wyoming, and many of them met their end at the prison. Today, the building has been restored and houses a museum, but employees and visitors routinely report frightening paranormal activity.
